- Film Festival
Here are a few more reviews from the past few days of the festival:
This movie was an excellent first directorial effort by the great Dustin Hoffman. Though there was one questionable decision, I still loved watching this movie because of the interesting characters played by a great cast, which includes the likes of the great Maggie Smith, Michael Gambon, Tom Courtney, Pauline Collins, and Billy Connolly, plus some real retired musicians and singers.
For being released in 1967, it’s pretty impressive how relevant The Graduate still is in 2011. I graduated in December 2009 with a degree in film and television media studies and soon discovered that my studies in school were very different from the jobs available in the “real world,” whatever that actually means. After nearly two years after graduation, I still have no idea what I really want to do. Fortunately, this is a feeling most recent college grads can relate to, including Dustin Hoffman’s Benjamin Braddock!
